What camera are you using the ringflash with? I see reviews of one of the clones on the Amazon UK site saying it doesn't work with either the A580 or any of the SLT cameras.

Ah yes . . the Achilles heel of the SLT system (I totally forgot about that problem). I used mine on A700 and now with the A850. One thing for sure is that some accessory compatibility of the SLT system truly sucks, and likely ends up costing owners more to re-purchase what they already had or have a limited choice of accessories that can be used at higher prices that we non SLT owners don't have any issue(s) with. It's not something I'll ever have an issue with thankfully!

The A580 is a DSLR so this incompatibility issue isn't SLT related.
